Could there be any changes in India’s starting XI for the match against Australia?

India have won all their matches in the T20 World Cup so far. Rohit Sharma will play his last match against Australia in the Super 8 on Monday. If you win this match, the semi-finals are ready. However, if they lose, there is a risk of leaving. Can there be any changes in India’s first XI in this important match? Or will Rahul Dravida play for the same team? Usually, the winning team doesn’t change. The management is leaning towards playing three spinners on the West Indies wicket. So there is no chance of changing the first XI against Australia.

India’s Probable First XI:
1) Rohit Sharma: has not been at his best so far. Started well against Bangladesh. He will want to score big runs against Australia.
2) Virat Kohli: could not score big runs despite starting in the last two matches. India has made it clear that Virat will play with Rohit in the opener. He can play with responsibility in important matches.
3) Rishabh Pant: has scored consecutive runs for India in the current World Cup. He has contributed in every match. But despite starting well, he is getting out by playing bad shots. Path won’t want to do that against Australia.
4) Suryakumar Yadav: Scored fifties against America and Afghanistan. He is a big hope in the middle order against Australia as well.
5) Shivam Dubey: scored runs against Bangladesh. Shivam’s team will hope to open their hands in the middle overs against the Australian pacers.
6) Hardik Pandya: scored a half-century against Bangladesh. He also took a wicket. Hardik will want to do the same against Australia.
7) Akshar Patel: Can come down to bat if required. Also taking wickets. So he can also be seen in the first eleven.
8) Ravindra Jadeja: Though not in the best form so far, the team is counting on him. He can be seen against Australia. Jadeja will want to return to form. 
9) Kuldeep Yadav: played well in the two matches he played. His left-arm spin could be Rohit’s big weapon against Australia.
10) Yashprit Bumrah: The main weapon of India’s bowling attack. He is in form for the current World Cup. Taking wickets in every match. Bumrah will have to do that once more to beat Australia.
11) Arshdeep Singh: The new ball is bowling well. He is the only left-arm pacer on the team. He will be seen as new against Australia. Along with Bumrah, Rohit also has confidence in Arshdeep.
